Requests for adminship[edit]

After conversion Wikispecies:Administrators to translatable mode, this page has become unusable for requests (and generally for discussions). Therefore, new requests are posted here.

Kaganer (talkcontribsblockall projects)[edit]

For improving translatable help pages and categories. Requested "administrator" and "translation administrator" rights (both flags at once). As example, for improving translation markup in Wikispecies:Localization etc. I have admin rights on Meta-wiki and MediaWiki.org (mainly for these same goals), and also translation admin rights in Wikidata, Commons, Meta-wiki and MediaWiki.org. --Kaganer (talk) 09:31, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Please note that requests for admin rights should be posted in the Requests for adminship subsection on the "Wikispecies:Administrators" page. There you will find an example of the proposed syntax for the RFA template which is used for the request. As you can see in the example the entire request is only a single line of code, starting with {{subst:RFA| followed by your user name, reason for the request, and finally ending with ~~~~}}. Nothing more. With the correct syntax the template automatically adds the main headline with links to your user page, your talk page, list of contributions, etc. The template will also automatically add all of the headings and subsections needed for the voting process (such as "Support", "Oppose" etc). There is no need to add them manually, as you did here.
Voting about translation admin rights will never be done on the admin's page: that page is only for "ordinary" admin rights. However, you can use the same template and syntax for translation admin rights requests, but then please post it at Requests for translation adminship instead.

Tommy Kronkvist, please note that Wikispecies:Administrators currently marked for translation, as other translatable help pages. Using that page for as "request page" is bad way because frequent changes that do not require translation, still worry the translation administrators and translators who receive unnecessary notifications. Ok, I moved my request, but please think about changing the procedure. --Kaganer (talk) 09:30, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
Well known two possible way for this cause:
  1. Extracting request page into transcluded subpage
  2. Extracting request page into fully separate page (as in Meta-wiki) - with trancluding translatable header based on user interface language
In my opinion, first way will be more compatible with the terms of the Wikispecies.--Kaganer (talk) 09:39, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
@Kaganer: Yes I have known this for quite some time, but haven't really had time to deal with it – after all, admin right requests are few and far between, and other Wikispecies issues have been more important. I agree that your first suggestion would be the most suitable for our needs, and we will have to look into this in due time. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 18:13, 17 September 2017 (UTC).
@Tommy Kronkvist: I fixed the instructions for you. OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:57, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
